I Have a Plan

I just got my protocol for the FET from my nurse. Nothing too crazy…just some estrogen and progesterone along with Medrol and Valium! This transfer should be a breeze. I have more faith in the FET cycle than I probably should. I guess I feel that it’s less stressful and there is less going on with your body so maybe it will work! I know getting my hopes up is a dangerous thing but I am going to do it! I am not going to look at the bumpy road we took to get here just focus on what’s ahead. No use in worrying about the past. I am going to try to be stress free this month! Ya right…but a girl can dream. Now I just need to wait until the 11th for my monitoring appointment. They will do blood work and check my uterine lining and my ovaries.

I went to my acupuncture appointment today and it was relaxing as usual. My DR specializes in acupuncture for infertility. She works closely with my RE’s office. For an extra fee of $250 she will go with you to your transfer and do acupuncture for the ½ hour prior to your procedure and for the hour you are required to lay there after. I didn’t do it for my IVF last month. I figured I could just go the day before and after – that there was no need to spend the extra money. So, when I was scheduling my appointments for the month with her today she offered to open her office the day of my transfer (she is typically closed on Tuesdays) so I can go in and not have to pay the extra fee to have her head down to the RE’s office. What customer service!

On another note…I think a girl in my office may be pregnant. She is newly married and I have seen/heard her puking in the bathroom twice this week. You don’t need to be a detective to figure that one out. Just another daily reminder of what I can’t have.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I plan on enjoying this beautiful Arizona weather. It will probably be the last nice weekend (in the 80’s) for a long time.


  1. That's awesome your acupuncturist is so supportive! We'll be praying for you guys.

  2. I just found out today that I will be doing a May FET also...I think my transfer will be the 16th or 18th. Yay...we will be cycle buddies again!! Here's to hoping we both get BFP's this time!!

  3. Good luck with the FET. And what a great acupuncturist you have. I have yet to try accupuncture, so I might look into it.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Isn't it so funny how we infertiles have pregnancy radar? I guessed a girl at my office was prego and sure enough an announcement was made. Ugh, so hard. I know. I'll keep checking in on you!
